That I think we're we're firing on all cylinders were growing the PC segment of the business.
We're starting to see great growth in our server business is the spilled out of the cloud is happening.
We're seeing good progress in terms of design wins in some and devices so.
It it were were set up for a pretty exciting second half.
But I know you guys are smart and you look ten miles down the road not ten feet down the road in UC.
Families having 123 tablets now what kind of R&D what kind of capex -- he pouring into developing chips.
That would be super star chips for the tablet world.

That are computing in connecting to the Internet you know you have your notebook computer.
People have Smartphones -- -- gathering data and in downloading information they have tablets.
There's this Internet of things where you have you know security systems and you know smart -- engines smart cash registers are all computing and connect Internet it it's expanding the market that we serve.
Morgan we have designs across a lot of those kinds of form factors we're gonna continue to win designs and and for the four factors that drive their client business.
But what we're seeing today and what's been driving our business -- -- nine months is that all of these devices that are connecting to the server infrastructure.

Up people couldn't do everything they wanted the so called cloud meaning not tied to a specific PC.
That business of -- the server business up 50% since I guess the first what six months of the year of 2011.
How -- you further capitalize on that do you look at that unbelievable growth me now there's an ETF that is focused on cloud computing itself.
You look at that they wait a minute let's shift some of our focus took that away from something else that isn't as -- -- revenue driver.
-- I don't think it's a question of focus saying -- have taking resources office something to focus more on that we've we've been in the server market prolonged time.
We're seeing great growth.
You know that's growth on top of what's happening in the notebook segment of the business -- growth on top of what's happening in our embedded business its growth on top of you know what we're doing in tablets and phones and so you know it's it it's one of those -- situations where.
Every segment of our business grew double digits in the second quarter.

And a combination of that hardware solution to security along with the software.
Of the -- offer them actually brings an equation.
Will allow us to you know solve security and identity management.
Problems and a more fundamental fashion.
Giving people you know even more assurance in terms of their computing experience.
So you see those in the second half and then -- -- -- from there are so you know it's going to be pretty quickly you start to see.
